Former Pentagon Union Chairman Indicted For Wire Fraud

By Tiffany Williams –

On Friday, November 6, 2020 a federal grand jury in Virginia indicted Arthur Penn, 64, of Quantico.

From 1999 through 2015, Penn served as the Chairman of the Fraternal Order of Police Defense Protective Service Labor Committee Pentagon, a local union that represented officers of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency.

During this time, Penn allegedly embezzled funds from the Union for his personal benefit, and spent the stolen funds on gambling, to pay for a personal trip to the Dominican Republic, and for his day-to-day living expenses.

Penn sought to conceal and prevent the detection of his embezzlement by failing to make regular reports to Union members, by violating his obligation to file regular financial reports with the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards, and by siphoning off most of the embezzled funds through cash transactions, thereby avoiding the creation of financial records that would have revealed the fraud.
